Petzoid takes the Cain themes of lust and duplicity and twists them into a reflection on modern Germany, where nationalism and loyalties and identity and economics are jumbled and thrown into confusion.

One Guy's Opinion

Isn't startlingly new, but it's a nice twist on a familiar formula, and should satisfy anyone who wants to see the postman, as it were, ring yet again.

A taut, German-made thriller, Jerichow adds a bit of European xenophobia to the pulp traditions of passion and betrayal.

Jerichow is not the masterfully complex work that Yella* was, but it's very tightly constructed and made, showing in some ways Peltzold's maturity as a filmmaker.

This is a movie made by and for adults, and adults should consider seeing it.

This swift, skillful film builds to a closing image that leaves you with what they call the wow factor on Top Chef not just because the finale is so shocking but because it is also so shockingly inevitable.

This is silly romance. It's sillier suspense. But I'm not above saying I enjoyed it.

It's easy to compare Jerichow with the films of The Postman Always Rings Twice, with the grimy gas station owner, the sexy wife and the rugged drifter, but people have a way of not behaving according to their superficial qualities.

The ironic denouement doesn't match the fever pitch of the build up. But . . .the walls of Jerichow fall down just from the heat Fürmann and Hoss generate.

Viewers will be drawn in by Jerichow even if they aren't familiar with Cain's tale and the other movies it spawned.

Petzold, who has a crisp style and sharp sense of the visual, is too talented and imaginative to allow his film to become predictable.

There is nonetheless something haunting about this film, a sense of desperation and defeat that seems less like a generic convention than like a genuine insight.

Monsters and Critics

A great modern neo-noir thriller with sparse, tight dialog and passion that boils right through to the final shocking ending.

Jerichow's sparseness, tiny cast, and minimal plot can make the film seem a little elusive, but there's a certain elegance to Petzold's concision, too. He shows all he wants us to see.
